We've known for several months that Chanel has plans to expand its retail presence on its official website, and yesterday, we got the first peek at what the brand has in store. Via Chanel.com, you can now browse and buy a large selection of sunglasses, which is one step closer to the online handbag sales we're so desperately hoping will one day appear.
For now, the sunglasses are plenty to look at. The site offers almost 250 options, all categorized by both frame shape and arm embellishment. The brand's sunnies aren't currently available for purchase online anywhere else, which marks this as new territory for the brand's digital shopping endeavors; previously, Chanel had only sold beauty and fragrance on its own site, which had long been available online from third-party retailers.
There's still no guarantee that the brand has any plans to offer handbags for sale online, but this development keeps our hope alive. Take a look at our ten favorite pairs from the new sunglasses shop below and peruse the full selection via Chanel. (Find something you like? Shipping is complimentary.)
